Great experience with Supplemental HC at Newton-wellesley hospital
Travel Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Newton, MA – July 26, 2012
Pros: good pay, good hours
Cons: benefits, no sick days
This was my first travel assignment. I got started quickly on a cardiac unit. They extended my orientation until I felt comfortable because I had to learn a whole new computer documentation system. The unit staff were all very helpful. My recruiter was pretty good at answering questions. However I had to speak to her manager at one point about being – more... paid my sign on bonus and she straightened it out for me right away. They do not offer day 1 health insurance. I was paid weekly direct deposit which was fabulous. – less

They have been very supportive.Ive been very please with working for them.Im just looking to see what is available and return to work after being out due to major injury requiring 6 month recovery period
Daily duties..Make contact with nurses regarding schedules, payroll and assignments.. 75 plus cold calls.. Learned how to post and create jobs online, hardest part of the job was not being able to find qualified candidates to feel positions.
Pros: traveling, meeting new people, acquiring new skills
Cons: unreliable work hours
I loved working for Supplemental for the past 4+ years, but the work has trailed off to nothing. I've hung in there because I love the company, but my savings is exhausted and I lost my health insurance because I wasn't averaging enough hours. I've only worked a few days here and there since last June and I'm not interested in working home health. I've – more... really enjoyed traveling, meeting new people, learning new skills, and getting to see just how beautiful Ohio is, but it's time to settle down. – less

RN (Former Employee), Dallas, Texas – September 27, 2013
Pros: friendly and paperwork not overwhelming
Cons: unable to solve problems without being considered the problem
Lacked attention to detail. I went in person to hand in my paperwork because my file never seemed complete to them. Replaced my certifications 3 different times. Placed in assignments without consideration to ability to maintain their contract as vendor. Met other nurses working in places I requested to be oriented and placed with less experience than – more... myself. Could never get closer to my home to work and tried to place me 40-60 mile one way commute for 4 hour positions.Pay was 3-4 dollars per hour less than other agencies.Was unable to get benefits due to extended, conditional start dates that only partial covered contract length. Local branches blocked working between travel and other locations to keep their numbers up for their benefit. Place felt like pressure cooker for the very young group of employees that I witnessed. – less
Payroll and Billing Processor (Former Employee), North Charleston, SC – September 19, 2013
A typical day involved in payroll data entry and customer follow up. Management was not often in the workplace on a daily basis. The hardest part of the job was not being able to provide in face customer service. I enjoyed my co-workers help.
Basically a fair company to work for however, new healthcare guidelines have made it difficult to depend on wage hours and consistant work

housing and not having tax free money not recorded as wages effecting mortgage approval when trying to secure mortgage to purchase house and the negative effect as it is not adding to rate of retirement social security. contracts ending earlier then determined initially by clients/ difficult to find short term housing on your own, and constantly needing – more... to learn new computer systems by different clients in each setting in a very short time – less

Working for Supplemental Health Care gave me the opportunity to travel to new places, meet new people, coworkers, and gave me the flexibility of choosing a shift. they paid weekly and they never missed paying their nurses.
